Best Buy in the US has marked down the AT&T Dell Streak from $499 (regular price) to $99 (on a 2 year contract). I know, sounds amazing! It is a pretty good deal, but just to be clear, the $99 price is with a 2 year contract, the regular price they have listed was without contracts…those marketing decievers!

In any regard, it’s still a pretty sweet deal for the Dell Streak which is getting Android 2.2 updates by the end of this month as well, making this a pretty hot deal. If you like, hit up Best Buy here, and pick either the white or black editions for the same sale price.

Now that the Nexus S has formally been announced, Best Buy has decided to put up the landing page! Right now it features the shiny new stock photo that came with the announcement, advertises that Android 2.3 comes preinstalled, and also plugs its speed,contour display, and that the latest Google Mobile apps come installed as well.

Not much to see just yet, but seeing as this is slated to go on sale December 16th, I imagine this will turn into a pre-order page in the coming days. Stay tuned.

Nexus S headed to T-Mobile by the end of the year?

by Tyler Cunningham on
tagged , , , ,

Earlier today, Best Buy slipped up and featured an ad for the “Nexus S”, which also featured some kind of image. It was immediately pulled, and the image is no longer showing up in Google’s cache, but a screenshot was managed and the image alt text shows “Nexus S for T-Mobile”

So it appears that the rumors of a new Nexus device are in fact true, and so is the fact it’s built by Samsung. There’s no word right now about when this may be available, or for how much, so stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

Samsung GT-i9020 is the Leaked Google Nexus S?

There’s been some talk online about whether the Samsung would be the next manufacturer of the rumored Google Nexus 2. Also, we reported the FCC approval of an unknown Samsung device called the GT-i9020. With the Best Buy leak, it’s becoming a little more clear that Samsung may certainly be the manufacturer of the next Nexus, and better yet, it may be the GT-i9020 that has yet to be announced. We’ll call this the Google Nexus S.

As you can see above, the FCC filing outline of the GT-i9020 lines up perfectly with the rumored Nexus S photo! Starting to come together that the Nexus 2, or now the Nexus S may be launching sooner than we think. Also, will it be running Gingerbread?

Wi-Fi only version of the Galaxy Tab postponed until after the holidays

by Tyler Cunningham on

According to this internal Best Buy document, the Wi-Fi only version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab will have its release date postponed until after the holidays.

Also, in Verizon Galaxy Tab news, while they are going to be selling with for $599 sans contract, it seems you will be required to sign up for a month-to-month data plan if you want to purchase one. So, let’s tally this up here. First, you get to spend the full $600 without any carrier subsidies, and then you are forced into a month-to-month contract?

Obviously, you would be free to cancel this contract after the first month, but then you just spent $600 on a tablet you can only use with Wi-Fi? I’m still holding out that Verizon is going to make a last minute change to their pricing structure for the Galaxy Tab, but with November 11th only a few days away, hope may be dwindling.
